On Twitter, many users said goodbye to Internet Explorer in a humorous way. "You took a long time to download stuff, you kept freezing and got replaced by other browsers pretty easily," wrote one user using the hashtag ripinternetexplorer. "But here goes one of the first browsers I ever used and I have a lot of good memories thanks to it."

The first version of Internet Explorer was released in 1995, and numerous people surfed the Internet with the Microsoft browser for the first time. With the advancement of other browsers, Explorer was considered slow and prone to technical problems.

In the early 2000s, Internet Explorer still had a market share of 90 percent. However, success has continued to decline in recent years. According to the analysis website Statcounter, Google Chrome is the most used web browser today with a market share of almost 65 percent.
